Bike24 - Vaude Bivi 1P Biwakzelt - green. Orkney-Inseln – Radreise-Wiki. Die Orkney-Inseln an der Nordspitze Schottlands sind ebenso wie die Shetland-Inseln nicht auf Anhieb als Radreise-Region zu erkennen, doch sind sie Teil des Nordseeküstenradwegs und verdienen schon aus diesem Grund eine Erwähnung im Radreise-Wiki. Sie sind von Schottland und von den Shetland-Inseln aus zu erreichen. Allgemeine Informationen In vielen Reiseführern werden die Orkney-Inseln als flach beschrieben - das mag aus der Perspektive des Autofahrers, der zudem den Vergleich mit den Shetland-Inseln oder der schottischen Westküste hat, stimmen. Die einzige Radroute der Orkney-Inseln verläuft aber ganz sicher nicht eben, sondern im kontinuierlichen Auf und Ab mit manch kurzen Steigungen. Klima und Reisezeit Wetterfest sollte man als Radler auf den Orkney-Inseln sein, auch wenn es sonnige Tage gibt. Sicherheit und Verhaltensempfehlungen Eine Warnweste kann sinnvoll sein, da der Nebel besonders an der Westküste sehr dick werden kann.

Fahrradinformationen Straßennetz, allgemeine Informationen. Orkney Ferries - Island Destinations. Brochure ...History on your doorstep Maps of Sanday in the 1700s show a much smaller island than at present, suggesting that the sea-driven sand may have joined up a series of smaller isles. The attractive island of Sanday is the largest of the North Isles of Orkney and, as the name suggests, its most outstanding features are the sweeping bays with their white sandy beaches.

Lying nearly 15 miles northeast of Kirkwall, access by air and sea is comfortable and speedy. Look for the 'Visitor Trail' signs as you explore the island. Wildlife The coastline of the island gives easy access to one of Sanday's principal wildlife attractions - seals. More elusive are Sanday's otters but the alert will find their tell-tale tracks - five toes and a trailing tail - in the sand and their 'spraint' or droppings on prominent knolls or rocks. Archaeology Around 4000BC farmers were settling here, attracted by the light sandy soils, which were easy to cultivate. Archaeology leaflet available locally.
